STRONG IN LONDON.
EUROPEAN EXCHANGE WAS
2sew York Market Ruled Strong
Despite the Heavy Profit
Taking Grangers Active.
New Tork, Oct. 15. American stocks in
ths London market after an Irregular open
ing closed Etrong and near the best. The
general market was firm. Cor.soU were
" practically unchanged. Money In the orcn
! discount market was easier In both London
d Berlin. European exchanse tended low-
There was no foreign news to affect
th London market, and most of the In
terest centered In American stntks.
In the local market tho strength of the
lost few days continued In spite of heay
profit-taking and sales of at least S0)
hares for Londcn. It looked as If the large
Interests were bullish, although the pre
vious day's buying of VanderMIt stocks was
not continued. Atchlpon Isucs tho'.veJ
ia&t strenKth. and tho possibility of a 1
per cent dividend on tho common was
freely discussed. The buying of the gran-
?;eri was generally good, and the better
sbor outlook helped all coal stocks. Man
hattan advanced en pool buying, helped by
very fair outside support. People's Oas was
almost the only stock which did not ad
vance, and the selling In It looked good.
Sugar was strong, and the possibility of a
return In December to the old dividend
bads of 12 per cent was freely camatsed.
Inalders seemed to be taklns hold of the
Meel stocks again, particularly Federal
Steel. It wa9 paid that the company had
rnrned IS per cent up to October 1. Lako
Krle and Western common and preferred
were both strong on the rumor that tho
latter would bo retired by tho Issue of 4
per cent bonds. Tho advance was main
tained up to the close In nearly all de
partments, with special strength In North
am Paclflo and Atchison Issues. Anaconda
was very strong; on foreign developments
and the hlfh price of copper. Standard OH
Interests seemed to be leading the bull
movement. The loan crowd presented no
feature of special Interest. There seems to be
no change In the Chinese position, and
there are signs that tho European markets
are cutting tree irom n.
The stock market has been much more
active and wider In the last few days and
ho outside public is coming in more and
noro every day.
The damage to cotton by the Texas hurri
cane Is estimated by tho Government
authority at s3.iW.CW. Supplies of hard coal
on hand ha"e proved ample In srite of tho
strike, but there H n larso demand both
for home and forclan consumption. This
looks like Increasing still further and will
necessarily benefit I'aslern roads. Jloney

Eligibility of EdTvtn Could a. Presi
New York. OcL IL'. Tho rrotest of the
minority stockholders of the St. Louis
Southwestern against tho present manage
ment of tho road by Gould Interests has
been revived. Jacob Newman of Chlciso
has expressed his inte-ntion of contesting
the election of Edwin Could as president of
the company on the ground that Mr. Gould
Is ineligible under Missouri laws, liecause lie
is Interested In other companies doing busi
ness with the St. Louis Southwestern.
It now appears that the re-election of Mr.
Gculd and the present directors allied with
him at the recent annual meetiag In St.
Louis was accomplished only through a,
cor cession which was made to the minority
Interests. This concession consisted In the
rrrsent of Mr. Gould, on advice of his
rounsel, to the repeal of the by-law passed
In 1SS9 providing for the election of only
three directors annually, instead of nine,
which by-law. It was claimed, had been
Fiis-ee-d to prevent minority stockholders
rem taking advnntngo of the cumulative
voting of stock, permitted under the Mls
seurl laws. In order to secure representa
tion on the Iioard. The full Board of Di
rectors was consequently elected at the SL
I.culs meeting, the minority Interests secur
ing. It is said, the election of Albert Loeb
and I.. M. Josephthal. The latter, however,
was disqualified on tho ground that nt least
threo directors had to be residents of Mis
souri under tho law, nnd that Mr. Joseph
thai was a resident of New York.
CANADIAN PACIFIC THREATS.
Jlny Ilreak Avrny From the Antl-Com-mtasiun
Threats have been made by tli Canadian
Paclflo to break away from tho anti-commission
railway agreement and to slash
rates clear to the Pacific Coast unless cer
tain concessions are made In the Immigrant
traffic. The ultimatum of the Northern line
consists of a demand for the payment of
about JU5,yiO and a large percentage of tho
Immigrant business originating at the port
of New York.
Tho money la claimed to be due from th
other lines as a result of the rate war which
occurred several years ago. Thnt war. the
Canadian Pacific asserts, was brought on by
failure of the lines to maintain the immi
grant nrreemenL In onlcr to get business
the Canadian Paclflo asserts that It has
been obliged to pay an enormous amount
In commissions, for which it now demands
to bv reimbursed. While this phase of the
question has lieen submitted to arbitration,
it Is stated that there Is a tiring to the
Canadian Pacific agreement to abide by the
Santa Fe' New Dlning-C'nrs.

Tho proposition to sell homeseekers tick

Another effort has bsen mado to induce
the Northern lines to enter the Transconti
nental Association, and It now seems to bo
definitely settled that they will not do so.
Mr. Whitney of the Great Northern stated
pcsttlvelj- tnat his company could not di
business when In an association, for tho
simple reason that it would be asked P
saenhec too much. Tho company purposes
tilling up the Northwestern States with im
mUrants and settlers, and realizes that it
cannot do so without the untrummeleil
privilege of making low rates whenever
and wherever it desires. The avowed pur
pose of doing this has been mado known.
and may have nn important beaiinc upon
the future of the association.

fourth of 1 per cent of their wages to applv
on the fund. Every employe on the road
will havo an opportunity to vote on tho
matter, and If it is acceptable to a majorlty
another meeting will be held and a com
